Looking to make a difference when you shop? Well, look no further! Menswear brands DIPLOMACY and LEOVICI have taken on some social responsibility and are making efforts to give back.
Every day it gets harder to find brands that will provide this “giving back” factor, especially when it comes to menswear. That is why DIPLOMACY and LEOVICI are the perfect places to shop and make a change.
Being conscious of what you buy and where is such an important thing to do these days. Supporting brands that contribute to making a change in the world is a great way to help make a change yourself.
American Athluxury brand, LEOVICI, released a limited-edition Jackie Robinson 42 hoodie donated all the proceeds to the Jackie Robinson Foundation.
Black-Owned brand, DIPLOMACY, released their “Peaceful Protest” capsule collection. The profits from the “Look Deeper” tee and “Masterpeace” tees are donated to The Bail Project Inc. Along with that, DIPLOMACY also donates proceeds from the “Free The Future x Wes Iwundu” collection to the Boys & Girls Club of Houston.
As a company that prides itself on innovation, excellence, and its promise to disrupt “the way things are”, Robinson is not just one of their inspirations, but also one of their greatest heroes.
Throughout his career, Jackie Robinson maintained a batting average of .311, hit 137 home runs, batted in 734 runs, and was crowned a six-time all-star, two-time stolen base leader, MLB rookie of the year, and world series champion.
The statistics and awards are impressive, but it is undoubtedly Robinson’s steadfastness, commitment, and desire for change that we and generations past, present, and future will continue to remember and cherish the most. The home runs, the batting average, and the world series title made Robinson a hall of fame baseball player, but his impact made him a hero on and off the field.
To honour this courage and one of our joint heroes, Leovici and JP Crawford is proud to present a limited edition Leovici x JP Crawford “42” hoodie. The garment features a black and white portrait of Robinson on their bone-coloured hoodie. No garment, no matter how great it is manufactured, can live up to the legacy of Robinson. LEOVICI is deeply honoured that the brand will be paired with one of its greatest inspirations.
Profits from the “42” hoodie will be donated to the Jackie Robinson Foundation.
Black-owned premium menswear brand DIPLOMACY partnered with NBA New Orleans Pelicans player, Wes Iwundu on the Free the Future capsule collection, which launched on JUNETEENTH.
